Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Keystone Ski Area and Arapahoe Basin. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Hotel de Paris Museum (in Georgetown), Boulder (McGuckin Hardware & Chautauqua Park) and Winter Park (Winter Park Resort & Fraser Valley Library). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, explore and take pictures at Coors Field, make a trip to Fraser Tubing Hill, and take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.
